when the shoe fits. . .
Posted on: April 1st 2014
It started when you were very little. Someone slipped a shoe on your pudgy foot to see if it fit.
And maybe it did and maybe it didn’t.
Depending on the fit and your temperament, you may have ended up screaming and crying with the constrained and disappointing feeling of the miss-match.
Thus started a journey through life. . . of finding the right shoes, the right jeans, the right partner, the right mentor, the right diet, the right foods.
Life has become a never-ending process of “trying on” one thing, then another, like Goldilocks wandering through the bears’ house while they’re out picking berries for their porridge. (And maybe porridge doesn’t fit with your dietary and digestive parameters and maybe it does. . .)
